How are transfer credits evaluated? If you have transfer credits, you should have your credits evaluated. To do this, request an official Credit Evaluation. This step usually takes a few weeks to complete. You can also use the Equivalency Chart but please remember that this chart is subject to change and is meant to be used as a guide only.
When are applications accepted? The RT program starts every spring quarter (late March or early April) and takes 2 years to complete. Applications are accepted during a 1-week window in January prior to the start of the program. The next application window will be in January 2015 but exact dates have not yet been determined (the dates will be posted here in fall 2014). Applications will not be accepted before or after the application window and mailed applications must be postmarked by the last day of the application window.
What are the application requirements? You must be 18 by the start of the clinicals to apply (clinicals start the fifth quarter of the program).

Attach up-to-date sealed, official college transcripts from all colleges where you have earned credit (excluding WVC). If you have transcripts that are over 10 years old, contact Bridget Grove to determine whether the old transcripts need to be submitted (firstname.lastname@example.org).
How are applications evaluated? Selection of applicants for the RT program is based on a probability of success score. Your score will be determined using:
Your cumulative college GPA
Your average grade from BIOL& 241 and BIOL& 242 (or equivalent)
Repetition of these courses may result in points being taken off the probability of success score.
Your grade from ENGL 97 (or equivalent)
Students with the highest scores are admitted to the RT program.
What is required if I am accepted to the program? All applicants will be notified by late January. If you are accepted to the RT program, you must complete all the requirements detailed on this page as well as all items listed in the acceptance packet (do not include these items with the RT application). You should also be prepared to pay a $50, non-refundable, acceptance fee.
What else should I know before applying to the RT program?
Acceptance to WVC does not guarantee acceptance to the RT program.
If you leave the RT program for any reason, contact the Director of the RT program to discuss your re-entry options (509.682.6677).
